If I were you I would do four things-

1. Get a roof top tent.

2. Put lots of stickers on your windows.

3. Never use low range. It’s highly overrated.

4. Go to Moab as often as possible.

Make a vid of how you put the top and lights one. Make sure to reference some awesome stickers. Then post it on youtube for your jeep buddies to marvel and talk about how awesome jeeps are.

I'm sure he knows. Maybe he'll even be there. I'll be nice and park this bitch in a crevice so he can wheel right on in.

You need an "Angry grill" and a Hi-lift on the hood. Get those right after the LED lightbars.

Oh! And a SNORKEL! For all those super deep water crossings that you will totally do.

Just stop by 4WP and have them fix you up with all the gay bolt on stuff. Then never, never, take it anywhere near any dirt.
